Glasgow launches site for green events taking place during Cop26

Glasgow City Council has launched a site for visitors to explore its sustainability projects and green events taking place across the city during COP26.

The Storymap gives residents and COP26 attendees the ability to create personalised walking tour of key sites that are part of the host city’s goal of net-zero carbon by 2030.

The interactive map can be picked up at any point in the city, dividing it into three areas that can be discovered on different days.
